c.1908 Folk Victorian Home For Sale in Paxton, IL Under $49K
The exterior of this home is gorgeous, but it will take some effort to put life back in the interior. Although, the interior still retains hardwood floors, stained glass, original staircase and molding, arched doorway with corbels, it is what I call “blanded out.”
Known as the Rasmussen House, J. Peter Rasmussen lived here with his wife Agnes Quinlin Rasmussen, and their children Mary, David, and James. J. Peter, known as Danish Pete to his high school buddies, was born in Denmark and was a salesman for International Harvester.
This amazing Victorian is on the list of Paxton’s historic homes. Named the Rasmussen house, this home is just waiting to be restored to its original splendor. There’s definitely work to be done but well worth it and the possibilities are endless. To get ahead start on the restoration there is the original woodwork, some hardwood floors , high ceilings, stained glass window, and some original ceiling light fixtures. All appliances stay including one year old washer and dryer. Bath was updated in 2018, roof is 3 years old and new porch and deck added this year. This can again be one of Paxton’s revered homes.
